Ashish Nady ,an Indian political psychologist, a social theorist, and a contemporary cultural and political critic. A trained sociologist and clinical psychologist, his body of work covers a variety of topics, including public conscience, mass violence, and dialogues of civilizations has remarked, at the Jaiput Literary Festival on 26 January, attracted ire from all and sundry with his remark.
1.Normally people would have torn the individual to pieces if he were to belong to the other Communities,Forward Community , especially Brahmin Community.
2.Unfortunately for them he belongs to Christian Community.
3.He has made a statement that most of the corruption emanate from SC ST Communities.
4.Why do people pounce on him instead providing statistics to nail him?
If a similar statement has been made against the Forward Community,especially The Brahmins, I am sure, every one would have endorsed it gleefully.
5.Who are A.Raja of 2G Scam:Karnanidhi,Kalamadi,Lallu Prasdad Yadav, and a host of others?
They definitely are not from the Forward Community.
Not that the Forward Community people free from corruption.
Why is it that when somebody makes a charge that the Forward Community grabs power at Centre,implying Nehru,Indira Gandhi ,Rajiv Gandhi,Narasimha Rao,Lal Bahadur Shastri and Presidents like Dr. Sarvapalli Radha Krishnan,Dr.Rajendra Prasad,and Shankar Dayal Sharma , declare that they do so by manipulative Politics,and that the Forward communities segregate SC’s STs, there is no call for censure ?
Every one joins the chorus.
The most powerful weapon one has is to belong to SC,ST and to avenge bosses or any one whom one does not like is to say ‘he / she called me by
If a Superior wants an Employee to work properly, and if he,she happens to belong to SC?ST, the Senior Officer is threatened with filing a case against him under ‘Calling by the Caste”!
I have seen this happening in Public Sector too often.
In fact in a Leading Public Sector Bank, an Employee resigned (he was from a Forward Community,though not a Brahmin) from a Senior Position for the same harassment.
It is a ritual for Karunanidhi,the self-styled rationalist and Corruption personified to cry ” I am a Sudra, I do not wear the Thread across my chest and people are out to get me”
And have people noticed that the SC,ST who get promoted to Senior positions call the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes people working at lower rung as ‘fellows who came up by Reservations?
While talking of Caste, why is it people don not ask whether an SC will marry into ST ,or OBC and vice versa?
Look at some false cases foisted under SC S Harassment Sections.

Journalist Ashutosh, who was among the panelists, and most members from the audience took strong exception to the statement.
“This is the most bizarre statement I have heard. The Brahmins and the upper cast can do away with all the corruption but when a low caste person emulates the same thing it becomes so wrong. Such statement is not right,” he said.
“Most of the people who are doing corruption are people from OBC, SC and ST communities and as long as it remains Indian republic will survive,” Nandy said. His comments were met with boos from the audience.
However, Nandy later clarified that what he meant was that most of the people getting caught are people from OBC, SC and ST communities as they don’t have the means to save themselves unlike people from upper castes.
